Stapely’s £100k appeal
LIVERPOOL’S JEWISH care home is appealing for £100,000 to fund a desperately needed refurbishment to its Victorian premises.
Stapely management has been told by the Care Quality Commission to start essential work on leaking roofs and water damage.
Repairs had been put off and rooms closed in anticipation of a relocation deal, which fell through in 2009. This would have seen a £4 million care home built at the back of the nearby Childwall Synagogue.
Now the care home watchdog — which previously awarded Stapely its second-highest rating — has warned that repairs to the 66-bed home cannot be delayed further.
Around £10,000 is needed for immediate re-roofing and the home’s management says new carpets, furniture and updated nursing beds are also required.
